Quoting: Colin Hall
The Republicans in NZ and Australia have been remarkably stilted in their usual comments over the last four days!
Britain is up to its gills in recession, yet through a combination of private donations and a variant of Dunkirk spirit, managed to pull off a stunning show of strength and pride, nicely tempered with eccentricity and anachronism. (And the inevitable bloody-minded quantities of rain, which only served further to typify the British can-do spirit at its best). Arguably the whole thing Ė royalty, flotillas, bunting Ė is one giant anachronism, but what a magnificent one.
Alright Colin, See we can agree me auld mate, well said.
A situation may be desperate but never serious
